In the BingoDaily newsroom, we love a good Bingo news story and they don't come more heartwarming than someone winning nearly £46,000 with a 90 pence stake playing online bingo.
One lucky dabber from Carlisle looks set to have a Christmas to remember after scooping a whopping £45,959.54 playing at Meccabingo.com.
Initially, the winner, who goes by the chat name ‘Schmell’ was unaware of the big win. It was only when other chat room members started congratulating the shocked businesswoman and seeing the balance shoot up, that the exciting news sunk in.
The jubilant winner said:
“I was so surprised when I realised that I had won. My husband was the first person I told, and we celebrated with a nice takeaway to bring ourselves back to reality!”
‘Schmell’ now plans to pay off some of her mortgage and buy herself a new car with the windfall. As a relatively new company owner, the money, we are sure, will be well received and a good festive period lies ahead for the Carlisle resident.
Catherine Warrilow, Head of PR and Content at MeccaBingo.com, one of the UK's biggest and best online bingo sites, said:
“We’re so happy for our fabulous winner and hope that she enjoys spending her winnings on a brand-new car.”
